PGA TOUR | Fortinet Championship: Titleist Brand Ambassador Max Homa – playing a Pro V1 golf ball and 14 Titleist clubs, including a TSi3 driver and TSi2 fairway metals, Vokey Design SM8 wedges and Scotty Cameron Phantom X 11.5 putter – claimed the first victory of the 2021-22 PGA TOUR season. He played his final 28 holes in 14 under, making birdies on Nos. 16 and 17 Sunday to win by one shot. Homa closed with his second-consecutive 7-under 65, tying for the best round of the day, highlighted by a hole-out eagle from 94 yards on the par-4 12th. … He finished the week second in Strokes Gained: Tee to Green (+10.54), sixth in SG: Off the Tee (+3.45), 12th in SG: Approach (+4.35), and 14th in SG: Putting (+4.17). He was second in putts per green in regulation (1.58). … Homa led a 1-2-3 finish for Titleist golf ball players. Both the runner-up and TOUR rookie Mito Pereira, who finished third, also played Pro V1. Titleist golf ball players have now won the last seven events on the PGA TOUR. • WHAT’S IN MAX HOMA’S BAG?

  2. I promise I am not only on MGS for golf balls (Check out my review of the Top Flite Gamer golf ball). But, I did notice something while playing this weekend that I had not noticed before. Basically, can having a ball spin too much or launch too high be a problem? I know the general answer is yes, too much of a good thing can be bad. But I would like to know why I experienced what I did with a "higher spinning" ball during my last round. I have played the 2021 ProV1 exclusively for my last 5 rounds and have had no problems with the ball. It is a well-rounded ball as everyone has come to expect with the ProV1. Over the weekend, I went and played, but realized once I was loading up my cart that only 2 balls in my bag were ProV1s and the rest were from a box of 2021 ProV1x I had been using before settling on the ProV1 for feel preference. I played the ProV1s most of the day except for the last 4 holes after hitting the ProV1s OB. I found the V1x and ProV1 have very comparable performance off the tee and only a slightly different feel off the putter. I noticed a huge difference in the balls with my irons this weekend that I had not noticed before while playing either one, and that is in wind play. The wind was constantly swirling all day as the course was out in more of a rural area with very few trees on the course or surrounding, but I never really had any major problems besides just accounting for the wind direction like I normally do for each shot. This strategy was fine until I played the ProV1x the last few holes because I could not get it through the wind at all. The ball seemed to just launch super high, hit a wall of wind, and be at least a whole club short along with getting blown left or right depending on which way the wind was blowing. Now, I'm about a 12 handicap that is not always consistent on strike, but there was one hole in particular that I had 140 to the pin, 120 to carry a creek, and into about a 10 mph wind. I normally hit a 8 iron 145, but with the wind I played a 7 knowing that a flush 7 even with a gust should put me on the green. I hit a fairly solid shot that wasn't heavy or thin, but a little on the heel, and it ended up in the creek. I put another ball down as a drop and hit one square that barely got over the creek, but wound up rolling down the hill. I didn't go quite full Tin Cup, but I took out on more ball, grabbed my 5 iron, and took a full swing that I hit a thin that wound up on the near side of the green for a 25 foot putt. I ended up playing a club longer the rest of the round to avoid a similar issue, but no matter what, it seemed the ProV1x kept getting caught up in the wind and not going where I thought it would. Does this sound like a normal performance from a ProV1x or another comparable "higher spinning/higher launching ball" in the wind?
  3. The ball lab report for ProV 1 is on the home page, here is a link to it. As expected the ProV1 scored very well in every category across the board. Share your thoughts below! https://mygolfspy.com/ball-lab-2019-titleist-pro-v1/
  4. Driver: Ping G400 SFT 9 degree, Alta R flex shaft. I also have the LST head but prefer the SFT. My miss is a slice and the SFT reduces it when it does happen. Irons: Ping G400 blue dot, 5-P. I like these irons but not head over heels about them. They feel great, sound great, relatively forgiving. Middle of the road price point new. 3 Wood: Cobra King LTD 3-4 Fairway. Adjustable. set to 15.5 degree, draw. My favorite club in the bag. Confident off the tee, fairway or rough. Hybrid 5: Cobra Baffler 5/R 26 degree. Next to the 3 wood this club gives me confidence galore. Wedges: Cleveland RTX 52/10. Ping Glide 54/SS. Cleveland RTX3 56/11. Ping Glide 58/SS. Yes, I carry 4. Putter: Odyssey O-works Tank 7 38" w/ Superstroke mid 2.0 grip
  5. Press Release from Titleist TITLEIST EQUIPMENT UPDATE: The Honda Classic According to Darrell Survey, for the third time this season, Titleist achieved the feat of sweeping every major equipment category at a PGA TOUR event - this time it is The Honda Classic - and by looking at the counts, the choice is overwhelmingly clear. From golf balls, to drivers, fairway and hybrids, and irons to wedges and putters, the Titleist brand is the overwhelming field favorite as the Tour moves from the west coast to the Florida swing. > Titleist is the top choice in golf balls with 112 players in the field of 144 - that's 78 percent of the field and seven times the nearest competitor with 16. > One out of every three drivers in the field is a Titleist with 48 (33%) in play this week - that's 16 more than the nearest competitor with 32. > The Titleist TS3 continues to be the most played single driver model on the PGA TOUR with 29, nearly double the next closest driver model with 15. > The Titleist TS3 is also the most played driver on the European Tour again this week with 29. That's 20 percent of the field playing that single model. > Titleist irons also accounted for nearly one-third of the field with 46 (32%) sets in play - 21 more sets than the nearest competitor. > The Titleist 718 MB (20) and the 718 AP2 (14) are the top two most played iron models this week. > Titleist Brand Ambassador Peter Malnati is playing the 718 AP2 Black irons (5-9) that were recently released. Malnati was shipped the irons to his home in Tennessee during his off week but never got a chance to practice with them because of inclement weather. It was the only set he brought with him to the Honda Classic and worked them into his bag this bag this week. He joins Cam Smith as the two Titleist players putting the new AP2 Black models in play. > More than half of all wedges in the field this week (220/55%) are of the Vokey Design variety. The nearest competitor has 60 wedges in play. > Scotty Cameron putters are the overwhelming field favorite this week with 54 (38%) in play, 14 more than the nearest competitor. > More players on the PGA TOUR rely upon Scotty Cameron putters than any other brand and tops the Tour in wins with 4 this season. > Titleist equipment counts at The Honda Classic vs. the Nearest Competitor (NC): GOLF BALLS: TITLEIST - 112 (78%) NC - 16 (11%) DRIVERS: TITLEIST - 48 (33%) NC - 32 (22%) FAIRWAYS: TITLEIST - 56 (31%) NC - 37 (20%) HYBRIDS: TITLEIST - 25 (39%) NC - 17 (27%) IRONS: TITLEIST - 46 (32%) NC - 25 (17%) WEDGES: TITLEIST - 220 (55%) NC - 60 (15%) PUTTERS: TITLEIST - 54 (38%) NC - 40 (28%)
  6. I got a sleeve of golf balls yesterday from Titleist. According to the included letter, they're the new 2019 Titleist ProV1's. Anyone else get some of these babies?!? I've run some numbers on it against the Snell MTB Black's. The 6-iron numbers look like this: Snell MTB: ClubSpeed: 87, PTI/SmashFactor: 1.39, Ballspeed: 120, Launch 19.5, Backspin 5885, Sidespin 198, Carry 172, Roll 10, Total 182. 2019 ProV1 ClubSpeed 86, PTI/SmashFactor: 1.39, BallSpeed: 120, Launch 20.3, Backspin 5830, Sidespin 523, Carry 172, Roll 10, Total 182. When I originally ran tests earlier this year on my launch monitor, the Snell MTB Black outperformed the 2017 ProV1's. Looks like Titleist is paying attention and the new ball is performing better than ever. Performance with Snell is now equal! Cost being a factor (ProV1~$48-$54 vs Snell ~$27-$32 shipped), Snell MTB Black is still my ball of choice. Very preliminary numbers, using 5 solid shots measured with my 6-iron. I've yet to test it with my wedge or driver. Just thought some may be interested... -- P.J.
  7. Now this is interesting... I suppose we could look at this a couple of different ways, but it appears to me Titleist is taking recent developments in the ball business - and how it has affected their business - somewhat seriously and are trying to get closer to their customers and firm up their brand loyalty. At least that's what it looks like, anyway. Your thoughts?

  8. So on Wednesday I'm headed to the Team Titleist Invitational at TPC Sawgrass. It will be 2.5 days of golf, getting to see and demo the entire 718 line, and getting to have a Q&A and discussions with several people from Titleist HQ. I went last year to Pinehurst when the 917 lineup was introduced and it was a fantastic time, filled with lots of great information directly from the sources. I'm really interested in hitting the new 718 lineup, probably focusing on the AP1 and AP3 but might also like to see what I can or can't do with one of those TMB's. So if you have any questions about the new line or really anything Titliest related..(except for the K Sig-ProV battle) I'm sure with the lawsuits in place, that's a non starter of a topic. But anything else let me know and i'll try and get the answer directly from them. I'll be updating this thread along the way with pics over the 3 days, so stay tuned!
